Canada’s a pretty awesome place to live (particularly Toronto). Though we may not chant as raucously as our neighbours to the south, once a year we find festive ways to showcase our pride—usually in the form of free concerts, street parties, camping trips or cottage time. It’s totally possible to sport your patriotism on your person without resorting to aggressive face paint or moose-emblazoned outfits. Here are 12 ways to flaunt your Canadiana spirit in style.
